Characterizing unknowns in food packaging using GC Orbitrap Mass Spectrometry Be the first to rate this application

identification unknowns food packaging


This study focused on the utilisation of a new class of GC-MS system with high mass resolution performance and exceptional mass accuracy for fast and confident identification of unknown compounds in food packaging. Full-scan and MS/MS high mass resolution experiments are important to achieve the selectivity and mass accuracy needed for confident elemental composition proposals, structural elucidation and discrimination of co-eluting compounds.
